[11/1/2017] Eigoro Mogi to have right elbow cleaned out

The media learned on October 31 that Eigoro Mogi was going to have surgery to clean out his right elbow some time today (or tomorrow, depending on the source). Mogi started having problems with his elbow in June and later developed right shoulder pain from overcompensation. He decided to have the surgery because the condition was beginning to affect his hitting. He will most likely require a month or two for a full recovery.
